#7  Since the only reason most go to college nowadays is to get the paper and could give a rats about the knowledge or whether they received marketable skills, of course they would only want easy A's.

#6  Maybe all professors pay should be based on the number of students they attract.

Really bad idea. You're assuming *studious* students. The highest paid profs would be those who don't demand any effort and give everyone an A.

#4  Advanced degrees and high military rank have never impress me a great deal.

This fellow holds two very important keys. One key is to the unbelievable degree of success the military enjoyed during the Ben Ladin raid at Abbattabad. The other is the unbelievable degree of failure and obfuscation experienced during the Benghazi debacle.

Following the Broadwell incident and his admissions, he is very lucky to still have his retirement, let alone financial tribute from colleges and other institutions.

#3  Eisenhower took the president's office at Columbia in 1948 for $25,000 which with inflation would work out to around $241,000 a year today. The president of Columbia in 2010 garnered $1.7 million a year. Someone got a bargain.

#2  Gee, do you think Petraeus might help bring students to a class? He might even pay for himself!

#1  Free Market. Check what the (Professional Farm Team) coaches get. Now how does it compare to other 'Profs'* salaries and number of hours put in classrooms? No perspective relative to the university system in NY.

* he does have a PhD and, unlike a lot of ivory tower personnel, real world practical experience.
